All of our guests are welcomed like family into the unique, authentic realm that is El Karama Lodge. Our hope is that through adventure and experiences we can share the true value of this incredible wild space and inspire those who visit and those who work with us to continue enhancing the biodiversity of this region.
Why is our lodge so special for families?
Because it's run by one. This family has a strong creative heritage that can be seen in every part of the lodge life from art on the walls to the sculptures in the shared areas.
We believe fervently in the power of the natural world to shape and inspire young people and our Bush School activity is focussed on bringing children a deeper understanding of the importance of protecting the natural world in their future.
We are extremely fortunate to also be home to one of Africa's greatest Sculptors, Murray Grant.
His private studio is located next to the lodge and interested collectors can book to visit and see the work in action.

We take great pride in our team and are privileged to have them by our side. All of them are Kenyans, some from nearby and some from further afield, all committed to high standards of service and hospitality. A few have been with us since the very beginning; indeed, hauled rocks with us, by hand, from the river bed to lay foundations and build the beginnings of this beloved lodge. As a result we are all deeply connected to the eco system in which we live and work together. It is this personal connection that makes safaris here so special.
Our team are your hosts while you are with us, which means all guests walk away with a richer understanding of local culture in Kenya. We all believe this is the most authentic way to experience the people of this country, so please, take the time to get to know us all on your safari.
